The weekend was spent trying to recover from a painful throat infection and getting the house back in order again after the decorating project. Just doing one room has made such a mess and upset the order in most of the rest of the house... We have no extra storage space and this creates the problem. It will quite a while till I start another decorating project, I think!
Cooking and baking is my way of relaxing and I made these vanilla custard filled buns - always a big hit with Our Boy. I got 18 out of this recipe, so some will go in the freezer in wait for a suitable occasion! I must have filled them too much as the filling had burst through several of them. Not that it mattered, but the 'surprise' was kind of showing...
The grey weather took a turn for the better and we even enjoyed some sunshine for a few hours. I took a few pictures in the garden and the main picture above shows that the lilac is getting ready with large buds!
Today is 28 February.
A special day which I always think about as my dad was a 'leap-year baby' born on 29 February and would have been 71 if he had still been with us. Sadly, he passed away almost 17 years ago.
I remember him most for his sense of humor and he used to have great fun with being 'younger' than his kids and getting us to calculate how old he really was...
